MEIN SATZ (2022)


The actress Libgart Schwarz is on her way to a meeting. The play Kaspar is to be filmed. During rehearsals, she suddenly loses her language.

Amina Handke’s first feature film is based on the play Kaspar by Peter Handke. The protagonist is not a young man but an eighty-year-old woman, embodied by Libgart Schwarz, the director’s mother.

Considering the shoulders of giants we’re standing on – the foundation of any culture – it seems quite obvious for an artist to deal with questions of influences within family structures.

Amina Handke

This film was an opportunity to find a level of familiarity and exchange with Amina that is only possible in serious collaboration.

Libgart Schwarz

Hail the aged Kaspars, with their eyes and tongues of explorers!

Peter Handke

Both highly concentrated, ostentatiously wavering and highly comical at times.
